Faith, then Fury

When his wife got cancer, 45-year-old David Jimenez spent hours praying in front of a marble crucifix that she would get better. The good news is that she did.

The bad news — at least for Jimenez — is that, when he decided to clean the statue as a show of thanks, the 600-pound crucifix came loose and fell on his leg, causing so much damage that the limb had to be amputated.

Now, the New York pizza parlor owner is suing the Church of St. Patrick. His attorney said “The screw holding the crucifix was useless. It supported no anchoring system.”
